When it comes to 'fashion bloggers' and where they lose me?
It comes down to living in and showing me realistic styles and fair prices.
Most fashion bloggers will show you an outfit and with it, hanging from their arm is a purse that sometimes weighs more than the 100 pound blogger, and is larger than her torso.
I simply don't see ladies out shopping with this look.
Most women of my age look for a handbag that does not weigh a ton, and
does not require opening a new credit account or placing a mortgage on their home in order to afford it. I mean, a handbag for over a thousand dollars? Kidding me, right???
Women of my age are spending their dollars wisely, and not on a two ton handbag that costs more than what it costs them for delivery service on their first born child back in the 1970's.
I do understand that the price of leather has sky-rocketed over the past five years,
but I simply won't open my check book for something to carry my lipstick and wallet around in that is more money than my leather sofa's cost.
Perhaps a company is paying them to show these expensive bags, but who is buying them?
Where do they make that kind of money? No, that's really not my business, but just think about it before you buy that expensive bag, because next year... no.... next season, it will be soooo out of fashion.
Don't fall into the trap, Ladies.
The trap that says you won't be good enough or fashionable enough without that humungous handbag draped from your elbow.
It just isn't so.
